Against Time

Against Time at Civic Room is a group exhibition that explores and analyses the concept of anachronism in relation to contemporary art.

Against Time

About Against Time

The exhibition features commissioned site-specific artworks by leading Glasgow-based artists, Sarah Forrest, Geneva Sills, Sue Tompkins and Toby Paterson and consists of new video installation, photography, performance work, and public sculptural installation.

Co-curated by PhD candidate Paula Zambrano and Sarah Strang, Director of Civic Room, the project looks into the contingent modes by which art gives meaning to the past, imagines the future and creates chronological disconnections when perceiving and grasping the contemporary time. It aims to investigate the creative possibilities of anachronism and contingency and to challenge linear notions of history and time by looking at the temporal discontinuities of Glasgow's urban context to then question the multiple, interwoven temporalities that exist within the Civic Room building as well as within the urban landscape.

Against time is part of the Supported Programme for Glasgow International 2018.
